Lovely cottage well equipped.

Mrs G,

Excellent place to stay for mountain biking. stayed with our two teens and 4 bikes, locked bike storage and a garage high enough the get the car under with bikes on the roof made life easier with no security stress. Property was clean and lovely, had everything we needed and sufficient Wi-fi to keep teenagers happy. Plenty to do nearby, beaches, biking, walking, wildlife and a less touristy part of Wales so easy to get to places and to park, Highly recommended.

Mrs M,

Lovely property offering everything for a comfortable stay. Quiet setting just a short drive from Machynlleth.

Mr C,

Just returned from our amazing holiday in Wales, our first visit and won't be the last. The property was amazing, peaceful with idyllic surroundings and stunning views. The property had everything we needed with ample space and facilities. My 8 year old daughter loved her double bedroom with TV. Great location and plenty to do within 45 mins drive, we saw some stunning beaches that were within a 25 minute drive. Would stay again and recommend a stay. Thanks for a very memorable half term.

Mrs J,

Lovely house - very clean, modern, quiet, comfortable and well equipped with great views of surrounding hills.
